After Sister Mary Ellen had lived in the monastery for 5 years, the Priest said, “Sister, you have been here for 5 years. You may speak two words.”

“Hard bed.”

“I’m sorry to hear that. We will get you a better bed.”

After another 5 years, the Priest summoned Sister Mary Ellen and said, “You may say another two words, Sister Mary Ellen.”

“Cold food.”

The Priest assured her that the food would be better in the future.

On her 15th anniversary, the Priest again called Sister Mary Ellen to his office, “You may say two words today.”

“I quit.”

“‘It’s probably best,” said the Priest.  “You’ve done nothing but bitch since you got here.”

Aah . . . that’s better!
